c-c-c-coo-coo for colorful!

guess we're dating ourselves with that "coo- coo for cocoa puffs" reference- but what the hell, we're old!

but we did go cuckoo when we received an email from dessin-fournir announcing the re-edition of several rose cummings fabrics, sourced from archival documents. this metallic print in particular captivated moi because of it's juicy color palette- simply fabulous. we'd love to do a room using the print in several of the different colorways. sear your eyes? maybe, but we guarantee you'll leave that room happier than when you walked in...

looks like we'll also have to drop 10 bucks on "the world of interiors", since they are featuring rose cummings' famous townhouse, and the room shown in the dessin-fournir email below , is absolutely one of our top five favorite rooms of all time. schtunning!

I want that room to be my bedroom -always have....and the fabrics are so wonderful - don't they have a bit of a "Fortuni" look in the print process

mary- i wouldn't mind it for my bedroom either- it would be a little girly for me, but what the heck, right? it's soooo beautiful- i can literally stare at it forever. it was worth paying 10 bucks for "world of interiors" for the photo, because it's the nicest quality photo of the room i've seen yet- usually it's a copy of a copy in some old decorating book.

Darling M - so glad you picked it up - I just received the new one yesterday. Subscribe already - it's genius.
